On behalf of our entire team, I am excited to share with you the first issue of Innovative Financing Solutions’ Monthly Newsletter – IFS Viewpoints. Developed specifically with lenders and finance professionals in mind, each Newsletter will deliver thought leadership articles authored by our senior executive team covering topics such as: Small-business lending strategies, borrower and lender success stories, the impact of the evolving regulatory environment on commercial lending, and unique lending solutions available for small- and mid-sized borrowers.

Each Newsletter will also feature educational articles providing valuable resources created to educate lenders in banks of all sizes and finance professionals on the unique benefits of providing Small Business Administration (SBA) and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) lending products and services to small- and mid-sized businesses that do not qualify for conventional commercial financing. These educational articles will also provide insights into conventional and alternative financing strategies utilized in various markets.

IFS’ experience in this lending segment is vast and our success over the years is the direct result of our ability to partner closely with community banks and finance professionals to expand their lending capabilities to meet the needs of small- and mid-sized business borrowers.

As this is our first Newsletter, we welcome your feedback on how we can make this series most valuable for you. Please send me your comments and suggestions for what you would like to see in future issues of Innovative Financial Solutions’ Monthly Newsletter – IFS Viewpoints.

Please be sure to read our first educational installment on the SBA’s International Trade Loan program!

Best regards,

Michael Ryan
